Post Fruit Cleanse Update

Yesterday was my fifth and final day of the fruit cleanse. I finished it off with a 75-minute hot power yoga practice. I wasn’t expecting to have problems during the yoga class because I practiced on days 1 and 3 with no issues at all. It was a very intense practice and I had to stop and rest a couple times because I was getting very light-headed. I pushed through it and I’m very glad that I did. However, things got a little interesting at the end. After completing the practice I stood up to leave and had to immediately take a knee three times before I even got out of the classroom. When I got out the classroom I got dizzy again and needed to sit down one more time. But I survived to live another day and I am very happy that I did the fruit cleanse.  For the record, I weighed my yoga clothes when I got home and they absorbed 2.6 lbs of water/sweat in that class.

Going forward, I plan on eating fruit as a meal at least once per day and doing a 3 to 5 day fruit cleanse once per month. I find myself craving fruit now and this is a much welcomed change.

I’m down to 222 lbs now! That is a total loss of 16.8 lbs which means I am 33% of the way to my goal of losing 50 lbs. This makes me very happy.
